Frenchman’s Cove Resort
The secluded beachfront cottages at Frenchman’s Cove Resort give couples their own private piece of Jamaica to call their own.…
Situated on Jamaica’s north shore with spectacular views of the Caribbean’s turquoise waters, Port Antonio enjoys a well-deserved reputation as a coveted honeymoon oasis. The city is among the largest ports in the country and has been one of Jamaica’s premiere tourist destinations since American travelers began seeking it out in the late 19th century. Despite its popularity, Port Antonio cherishes its quiet nature, with endless expanses of white sands serving as a paradisaical setting for rest and relaxation. Basking in the glory of the Jamaican sun, you’ll be inspired by views of Navy Island and Monkey Island, the latter being situated in water so shallow that it can often be walked to in low tide.
Port Antonio is certainly in a class above when it comes to tropical paradises, though it is further elevated by its direct access to adventure destinations. One-of-a-kind experiences are always waiting to be savored at natural treasures like Reach Falls, where you can enjoy a guided tour on Driver’s River, or the Rio Grande, which offers daily rafting tours along Jamaica’s beloved river. Take a guided hike of the Blue Ridge Mountains, where you’ll enjoy a dense natural setting teeming with life before its peak reveals one of the most gorgeous vistas in the country. For an outdoor experience that you’ll savor for a lifetime, be sure to swim in the crystal-clear waters at the hidden Blue Lagoon.
The heartbeat of Jamaica is perhaps best felt through its arts and cuisine, both of which are in abundant supply in Port Antonio. Live music is a staple of the region, as are arts and crafts destinations like the Musgrave Craft Market in the downtown area. Esteemed restaurants serving delectable dishes can be found throughout the city, and you’ll definitely want to make the short trip to Boston to enjoy succulent jerk pork at the birthplace of jerk cuisine.
Finding a place to stay is a breeze as well thanks to a plethora of renowned resorts and hotels that cater to every price range and honeymoon length. Whether you’re looking for an all-inclusive resort or a cozy boutique hotel, your stay can be customized based on any preference.
As you take in the rich vistas afforded by an undisturbed pureness, it will be abundantly clear why Hollywood producers regularly select the city for stunning tropical films. Comedy favorites like Cocktail and Club Paradise have utilized the beauty of the city for memorable scenes, and the destination is highly sought-after by photographers; both professionals and casual honeymooners looking for the perfect shot to encapsulate heaven.
And heaven it is. For a destination honeymoon that is bursting with passion and culture, look no further than Port Antonio.
